Just like Nollywood,the nigerian music scene is descnding quickly into mediocrity.

In the early 2000s,the music was great.it was fresh to see new artistes come up with innovative and fresh material that could compete with those in the US.In hip-hop and R&B.

Today I turned on my radio while driving,and one guy was just belting out senseless vocals over incoherent and loud beat.and in my mind,i was like WTF is this?

It's really depressing.

Make no mistake;there are still the standouts.But it's now been dominated by mediocres.

Give or take a few years,we'll all be running back to the states for our music if this silly trand continues.

Ok first off, we have a LOT more talented artists than those. Then IMO, I'm not all that worried of any crash of the industry whatsoever cos all these songs we have around nowadays are just a sign of how well the music industry is doing and as long as ppl still buy and enjoy that kind of music, they'll keep filling the airwaves and shelves. The good thing though is there are still a number of artists that stand out, I could mention a couple, so if one gets tired of the cookie cutter stuff out there, there are still quite a number of options to escape to.

Many people don't know what they want, they claimed 2face's album lacked party songs so many didn't even give it a chance now ppl are tired of those kinds of songs. I suggest ppl take time to listen to certain artists, sometimes good music takes time to be appreciated. We've become very lazy in listening, we just respond to beats and this in turn has made most artists lazy with their production.

Naija music so far this year, has lost what made me like it in the first place, which was music with good lyrical content i could sing-a-long to and songs that make sense.

and that is eventually what is going to kill the industry. It will be reborn, but it will crash first. You can't export a song to the rest of the world with crap lyrics and 80% of naija jams have them. Music is now a biz in Naija for both people with and without talent. It's like formula.

Make a party jam and you'll be fine. But the truth is, all the people that have truely made it, had good Lyrical content in the songs or at least better than most. P Square, 2 Face, 9ice, D'Banj etc

Most nigerians are not interested in lyrics anymore but only interested in danceble or party jams.
